KITTITAS COUNTY, WA — Four people died Saturday afternoon after a fiery rollover crash involving an all-terrain vehicle near the town of Liberty, according to KOMO News.

The fatal accident happened on a dirt road within the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest. Deputies with the Kittitas County Sheriff’s Office and local firefighters responded to the scene at about 4:00 p.m.

While the circumstances of the wreck remain under investigation, the KCSO said 24-year-old Conner Jenkins, of Orting, and 23-year-old Benjamin Gomez Santana, of Covington, were traveling in a Polaris Razor side-by-side ATV with two people they met earlier that day: Devon Anonson, 26, of Kent, and Halle Cole, 24, of Maple Valley. At one point, the ATV rolled over and caught fire.

Gomez Santana and Cole were pronounced deceased at the scene, confirmed officials.

Jenkins and Anonson suffered critical injuries and were rushed by helicopter to Harborview Medical Center’s burn center, where they later died.

No further details have been disclosed at this time, but the KCSO continues to investigate the cause of the crash and fire.
